INSEAD Ski Weekend, Disentis

Join us for the second edition of the INSEAD Disentis Ski Weekend. It takes place on March 20-22, 2020. Join us for two days of skiing, a special pizza dinner as well as a fondue dinner in the mountain station, optional freeriding with a mountain guide, and optional ski school for children.
Whether you are young or still young, join in. Bring your family too. We will offer optional freeriding with instructors, including avalanche training, ski rental, skiing for kids – provided there are enough interested participants for the courses. On Friday evening there will be a pizza dinner with all sorts of perfectly done pizzas from Claudio, an international pizza champion. On Saturday evening we will take the gondola up to the mountain station Caischavedra to enjoy a fondue with a fabulous view over the valley. Ski passes and accomodation are not included but we have negotiated a special package, which if you choose it, needs to be booked separately (see below).
